    “Lovely cottage situated right within the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale, location was fantastic, we had a lovely holiday there and would definitely return, the only small negatives is the parking you can’t access the cottage with a car although the car parks not far away it’s costly to park for the week and unloading the car on arrival and packing up when leaving was a bit of a annoyance to be fair this was mentioned when booking the cottage, also no double glazing which is obviously to fit in with the style of the building (which is lovely) so at times it could be a bit noisy, this aside we had a lovely holiday.”

About the location

KIRKBY LONSDALE

Kendal 9 miles.

An attractive market town, Kirkby Lonsdale is situated in the heart of the Lune Valley, midway between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and holds a 13th century Market Charter. Nowadays, Thursday is market day, a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive shops in the town, or the many 17th and 18th century buildings which still stand. The town was also a finalist for the High Street of the Year Award in 2016. This part of the Lune Valley was a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, and was made famous by Ruskin – his "view" of the valley is still spectacular. The medieval Devil’s Bridge spans the river, and the quiet country lanes are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even horse. There are three golf courses nearby, as well as tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks, making the area an ideal location for a break, whatever time of year.
